Limited 80 CD box set. Doing full justice to Beethoven's awe-inspiring, but profoundly humane genius, this is Warner Classics' first-ever complete edition of his works. It draws discerningly on the riches of the label's catalogue, assuring integrity by assigning entire cycles to the same artist, ensemble or team of performers. Classics from the age of the LP are complemented by the best of the CD era and by a wealth of new recordings of rarely heard works that are ripe for discovery. This is a comprehensive and deeply satisfying tribute to Beethoven, a transformative force who has enhanced the lives of music-lovers for more than two centuries.
